Apple Fritters ( Ree Drummond )

Apple Fritters ( Ree Drummond )

Recipe source :  The Pioneer Woman Cooks

I was browsing through Ree Drummond's extensive recipes when I saw this apple fritters using green apples. I read through her easy to follow step-by-step photo shots and it seemed easy to make.  I have a few green apples sitting in my fridge and all the essential ingredients to give it a try without having to expend any extra effort to source for ingredients. To borrow Ree's phrase, I have the full "cast of characters" all lined up.


2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp sugar           ( I did not add this to the dough )
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 big eggs
3/4 cup milk
2 tbsp melted butter
2 green apples, peel and dice
oil for deep frying    

Note :  I have omitted the glaze. Instead, I used 3 tbsp powdered sugar to dust the fritters after frying.

The apple fritters were just as good without the powdered sugar


1.  In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
2.  In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a fork, then add milk, melted butter
3.  Fold dry and wet ingredients together until just combined (do not over mix.) 
4.  Fold in apples. 
5.  Heat oil over medium to medium-low heat. 
6.  When it gets hot, drop teaspoons of batter into the hot oil. 
7.  Cook them long enough to make sure the batter is cooked through or has turned brown.
8.  Remove and drain on a paper towel. 
9.  Dust very generously with powdered sugar.  

For a more detailed step-by-step instructions, follow Ree's link above.

  1. Hi Doris,
    Never made apple fritters before, thanks for presenting sugar and non-sugar versions! Looks good.

    1. Hi Emily, Ree's apple fritters are spongy. Very nice.

  2. Hi Doris,

    I realise the American like to load their sweet with lots of sugar. Although eating these fritter with the glaze sounds good, I also agree with you that dusting these delicious fritters with icing sugar can be good enough :D


    1. Hi Zoe, It's not just the sugar but also the butter and cheese! Some of the recipes look so good but when I see the amount of butter being used, I have to think twice!

  3. Doris, I've never seen these apple fritters before and now that I'm seeing these for the first time, I'm already thinking 'goreng pisang' or even 'fried cemdepak'!! Yummy!

    1. Hi Grace, Thank you for the great idea of adding pisang or cempedak. I guess it will be very nice. Yes, yummy!
